Christmas day crash leaves five in critical condition

Injury Lawyers in Los Angeles California

Everyone likes to think that on holidays and other special days, that nothing bad happens — that somehow everyone has a perfect day. But that isn’t the case, and for five people in the Los Angeles area, this past Christmas was an unfortunate reminder of that. An accident involving two vehicles left the five people with serious injuries, and all of the victims were listed in critical condition after they arrived at a hospital.

The wreck occurred just after 10 p.m. on Christmas, and two of the accident victims needed to be extricated from the wreckage. The other three were flung from their vehicles. Little else is know about this crash at this point, but the California Highway Patrol did say that they believe one of the vehicles hit a tree, but this is unconfirmed at the moment.

There will be more information on this wreck as the days pass by, but in the meantime there are serious questions about this crash. Were either of the drivers distracted? Given the time of the crash, could either of the drivers been intoxicated or fatigued? Are there other circumstances that could have been involved here that we aren’t considering?

After any crash, these questions are pertinent. A full investigation into any serious crash will happen, but they also take a lot of time. Victims of these crashes need to be patient as they await justice.
